I’m now assembling quintessential viewing & reading for any self respecting EVE player to watch on youtube, read in blogs including the best trailers, the best machina, the best moments from Alliance tournaments, and the best fanfics.
Any suggestions, submissions for any eve related vid, image, podcast or piece of writing that you think deserves to be included in this list should be submitted in the form of a comment on this post, which will eventually be released as a permalinked blogpost with a whole bunch of links which i will keep updated.
Please understand that i have not sampled every eve-related pic, image, vid, blog or guide. Suggestions are greately appreciated, and please give me time to expand and link this, as it’s very much a work in progress.
Videos- i haven’t added links for most of these yet, hold on.
- AT 9, Missed it by that much…
- The Classic “Hulk PVP” vid
- Clear Skies 1, this series is god.
- Clear skies 2, ditto
- Clear skies 3, ditto
- Clear skies 3 trailer– yes the trailer.
- Clear Skies Official Site
- Eve Dominion Trailer– watch it and you’ll understand.
- The EVE downfall parody. there needed to be one and this is it.
- Dat Avatar…. in Minecraft.
- Eve ship comparison sizes. Despite the many remakes and copies, none of them quite captures the “HOLY SHIT” moment at the end.
- Yes, 50 noobships can actually kill something. i was suprised too.
- Eve Learning Curve
- CPP gang VS Eve gang.
- RIP Podlogs.
- EVE blogpack- First managed by the blogfather Crazy Kinux, now managed by Rixx Javixx over at Eveoganda. this is the elite, consisting of blogs that have been going strong for years.
- Eve Blogs net- An up and coming joint bloggign site that is filling the void left by podlogs.
- Evebloggers- This is the site that has about 90% of all the eve blog traffic in a realtime feed.
- Pirate blogpack- an older, more focused blogpack than the EBP, and it’s actually a partially joint site. Not as active as it used to be unfortunately.
Guides, references (all in downloadable PDF format)
- Everythingwormhole– ArcDragon’s excellent wormhole guide. Not only a fantastic guide to wormholes but an excellent essay on the healthy level of paranoia that all lo/null/wh sec pilots have.
- the Rifter guide- Weasley’s classic Rifter guide.
- Joram’s Carebear PvP guide– Despite being from a different age in terms of EVE, this guide manages to capture the essence of fleet and gang warfare, especially physcology at both ends of the deal.
Miniguides: (mostly posts in blogs, but that doesn’t deny their quality); since there’s a whole lot of these i’ll just post the sites. Keeping this separate from the Blog section is iffy, but there’s a few noticeable blogs that stand out for the amount of guide posts they do.
- Jester’s Trek: Jester is easily one of the most active bloggers in the business, and one of the best. he gives a whole lot of guides, which are as good as they are diverse. Check it out.
- Eveoganda: A lot of small gang and general PVP miniguides, especially concerning losec and small gang warfare.
EVE sites- providing services and databases, forums
- Battleclinc- the number 1 fitting site, with tens of thousands of fits, as well one of the most widely recognised Killboards for official comparisons. in addition it has a decent forum network.
- Doltan: Strategic maps for your PDF storeage, giving the services of a system as well as up
- EVEnews24: a nice diverse constant feed from a mixture of alliance annoucements, CPP and blogs
- EVE-Central: the prime market data site. still
- Griefwatch: Killboard of sizeable merit
- EVEfiles: A general file dump, worht a visit.
- the Autosov map: want to see what’s happening in nullsec at a glance? this is still a really good way to do it, a java generated updating map
- The Actual EVE forums
- Pyfa- A fitting tool that uses python- it works on any platform, linux, mac, or windows. it has a real time price check for components, and provide DPS and tanking graphs, including all the stats you need for your build
- EVEfitting tool- the original fitting tool, mostly windows only. provides about the same.
- Capsuleer 2.0- after the first version of this unfortunately crashed and burned, the second iteration is now here, providing skill training que management from your iphone/ipod. if there’s an android version out, then someone please inform me.
Once again i hope to constantly expand and link this post, and any suggestions and recommendations would be appreciated.
